World Energy Week is the Council’s annual general gathering of global energy leaders to promote the sustainable supply and use of energy for the greatest benefit of all.
The week-long event hosted by the Council’s Italian member committee, 8 – 11 October, will offer a wide range of activities and networking opportunities for the global energy community including high-level, exclusive sessions that will convene Ministers, CEOs and energy leaders. The event will drive debate and open dialogue between an audience of local and global energy experts. There will also be prestigious social events throughout the week including a gala dinner and special cocktail reception.
Its mission is to:
- Convene energy leaders and practitioners from across the spectrum of the energy system to identify and set the priorities of the world energy community;
- Provide a stage for the Council’s content and insights, and to share perspectives on new developments and experiences across the global energy system and how each country can address its energy trilemma;
- Catalyse thought leadership;
- Assess strategic priorities for the Council across content, network and platforms, allowing time for regional and global communities to come together.
Innovation, new technologies, resilience and energy access are topics set to be high on the agenda at this year’s World Energy Week in Milan. The event will also host the Council’s major governance meetings culminating in a full Executive Assembly Plenary. Other events include:
